Asus drops GPS from tablet spec-sheet after issues emerge

Asus is dropping the words “GPS” from its  Eee Pad Transformer Prime spec sheet after reports of the tablet’s inability to connect to GPS satellites in favorable time. The tablet will still contain the technology, but new users reading spec sheets to to compare products will not see GPS listed on Prime’s specs.

Forum posts from unhappy customers about the tablet’s poor ability to grab hold of GPS signals has left Asus scratching their heads. Eventually users get connected to the tablet’s satellite, but it takes longer than expected.

Asus has acknowledged the tablet’s GPS concerns, even emailing one unhappy customer stating ”metallic unibody design… may affect the performance of the GPS when receiving signals from satellites”.

Eee Transformer Prime, of course, is not the first GPS-equipped tablet to have metal backing, and those on the market do not appear to have any issues connecting to the GPS satellite. It would appear the problem on the Prime may run deeper– something owners of the tablet will may not wish to hear.

I wonder if the website slogan “Paired and Primed to Perfection” will be updated at a later time . . .
